Places for medical tourism in Egypt

Pharaoh ‘s Bath (Hammam Pharaon) is a natural sulfur water spring known to be one of the most famous springs and a sought after destination for medical tourism in Egypt. Located about 45km from Suez and 125km from Cairo, Pharaoh’s Bath consists of two parts: the Pharaoh’s Cave (Kahf Pharaoun), and the springs themselves.

The sulfuric water springs lining the seashore produce significant quantities of water with temperatures as high as 92 degrees Celsius. It consists of a group of natural hot sulfuric springs. The water flows directly from the mountain into a 100- meter-long natural lake adjacent to the sea shore.

A small cave, 25 metres into the mountain, has been carved out of the mountainside above and is being used as a natural sauna due to the emission of heat from the hot sulfur water from the bottom of the cave.

It has been scientifically proven that the water from this spring can help alleviate a number of diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, and rheumatism of all kinds, and gastrointestinal diseases, kidney disease, and the sensitivity of the lung, liver disease, skin diseases, as well as their benefits are used for purposes beauty in addition to several skin diseases.

Research shows that water containing high concentrations of sulfur outweigh its counterparts of mineral water from around the world. 

Due to the mild climate throughout the year, the dry weather and the vast spaces of the warm sand that can be used in physical therapy. Surrounded by a chain of mountains, makes this location ideal for the establishment of a healthy tourist resort.
